  • Born in 1972, Risa Wada is an emerging Malaysian-based artist with a Japanese spouse. She graduated with a certificate in Fashion Design from Eric’s Fashion School, Penang in 1991. She pursued a diploma in Business Administration with Stamford College to expand her skillset for her career. Upon graduation, Wada worked in an investment bank for 18 years but quitted her job to pursue her childhood dream as an artist.


    Wada's initial art inspiration came from her cat Toro as he often stares at cacti. Wondering how Toro sees the world, she imagines how the plant spirits, or "Anima" (Latin word of "Soul") would look like and starts to combine two aspects of life in her works: Mother Nature & Human Emotions. In addition, she looks up to her idols, Yayoi Kusama & Joan Miro, for changing people’s perceptions of contemporary art.
